Book Talk and Celebration – Hybrid Event
Please join FMST/CRES professor Felicity Schaeffer for a discussion of her newest book, in conversation with Jennifer Gonzales and Kat Gutierrez
Unsettled Borders: The Militarized Science of Surveillance on Sacred Indigenous Land, examines the ongoing settler colonial war over the US-Mexico border from the perspective of Apache, Tohono O’odham, and Maya who fight to protect their sacred land. Exploring the logic of borders, Schaeffer turns to Indigenous sacred sciences and ancestral land-based practices that are critical to reversing the ecological and social violence of surveillance, extraction, and occupation.
